Training

Welcome to the start of 2022 training courses!  The courses available are Organising Stewards, Organising for Health & Safety and ERA Refresher which will all be tutored by UNISON Scotland staff and lay tutors via the Zoom platform, held in half-day sessions. Members who register for these courses will receive a paper copy of the core materials and other course materials will be hosted online.

There are a lot of opportunities to take part in training with UNISON:

The programme was developed based on the demand for courses last year together with input from the following:

  •    Service Groups,
  •    Branches,
  •    Self Organised groups

and introducing any new courses that have become available nationally.

The courses are held centrally, except for specialised courses, most are facilitated by qualified Lay Tutors who are activists themselves or specially trained UNISON staff.

Well-trained activists are the backbone of our union – and we aim to provide relevant, quality education and learning to equip them for the challenges we face.

In these times when we are facing unprecedented cuts and attacks on our facility time – now more than ever we need to keep education and learning high on your agenda in the branches to ensure our activists get the support they need to keep on representing
